Greg Jennings encourages Dez Bryant to take a pay cut

Four days after the Cowboys’ season ended, wide receiver Dez Bryant was asked about his contract situation and if he would be willing to take a little less money to play for the Cowboys.

Hell, no, man, Bryant told reporters. I believe in me.

When they start using words like, ‘We’re looking at the full body of work,’ those are tell-tale signs that…you’re going to take the pay cut, Jennings said. We’ve got to look at the full scope of what’s going on around us and so for me, I didn’t take the pay cut initially…I was no longer in that Vikings uniform because they decided to go with Mike Wallace.

Bryant has two years left on his deal worth $25.5 million. The Cowboys could cut him and take less of a cap hit now than they would have after 2016, or even 2017. Cutting him could make sense for the Cowboys if Bryant is not willing to restructure his contract. Jennings urged Bryant not to put himself in that situation.

Dez… Dez… just take the pay cut man.

It wouldn’t be fair to judge Hue based on his record after just two seasons because few NFL teams have put themselves at such a disadvantage in order to save assets and focus on winning three or four years down the road, Thomas wrote for Sports Illustrated.

This season, the Browns became only the second NFL team in history to go winless over a 16-game season. General manager Sashi Brown was fired and John Dorsey took his place. It seemed only a matter of time before Jackson was fired, too, but Thomas said owner Jimmy Haslam had to remember why Jackson was hired in the first place three years ago.

He was the hottest coach on the market for several years, developed QBs like Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton and went as a head coach in his only full season, Thomas said. He’s a great leader, a great manager of coaches and a great X’s and O’s football guy. Firing him based on the record wouldn’t have been the right move.

Bryce Harper, Hunter Strickland suspended for setting off Nationals-Giants brawl

He’s the most effective closer in baseball — he has converted 54 consecutive save opportunities dating to September 2015 and is 125-for-133 the past four seasons — but he’s made only nine appearances this season thanks to a forearm strain that’s landed him on the DL twice already. The only reason this problem isn’t higher on this list is his primary replacement, Brad Brach, has done a passable job in his place (10 saves in 13 opportunities). Still, Britton’s absence impacts the entire bullpen in a domino kind of way.

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has been suspended four games and Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland will sit out of six for their roles in a benches-clearing incident Monday at AT&T Park, Major League Baseball announced.

Strickland plunked Harper on the hip with a 98-mph fastball with his first pitch to the Nationals’ star in the eighth inning to set off a brouhaha that ended with Strickland being dragged to the Giants dugout by three of his teammates.

Both Harper and Strickland received an undisclosed fine for fighting. Harper was also knocked for charging the mound and throwing his helmet, MLB said.

The suspensions had been scheduled to be effective Tuesday night, but both players have elected to appeal. The discipline will be held in abeyance until the appeals process is complete.
